An itchy, sore vagina is no good to anyone and can really take the fun out of just about everything. If you have never been diagnosed with a yeast infection you may want to go and see your friendly OB because the symptoms commonly associated with a yeast infection could be due to something more serious. But if you are only experiencing mild symptoms, or are quite familiar with your vagina’s response to a bumper crop of Candida albicans, you might want to try a few of these home remedies before you head over to the gyno.

Music is an important ingredient in my life—and because of that, I go to shows all of the time with my friends and loved ones. Recently however, I was listed and had a plus one to go see Dragonette at Chicago’s Metro. Life got a bit hectic — I forgot about it, and then the day of the show I wildly went through my contact list trying to coerce someone to go to the show with me to no avail. I sat on my couch, defeated and sad, and then it clicked - I could go alone! Why had I not seen this as a proper option!?
I threw on a cute outfit, sprinkled some glitter over my head, and jumped onto my bike. When I walked into the venue Dragonette played the first beat of their set. At first I was a little self conscious about not having any friends with me, but two songs in, I quickly forgot I was alone and let the music consume me. Before too long, I was dancing my ass off, twirling around with my neighboring concert goers. The Canadian electro/synth pop band’s lead lady, Martina Sorbara, joked through the night and made everyone feel like we were old friends. It is hands down one of the best and most energetic shows I saw in 2012 and is without a doubt, 100% the absolute best light show I have ever seen at a concert. During the show my entire body was buzzing with inspiration, possibility, and hope.
